If you’ve ever had a clogged drain, you know how frustrating it can be. Whether the drain is in your kitchen or bathroom, the water won’t flow freely, becoming a significant annoyance.
Here are some tips to try if you find yourself with a clog.
Try Using a Plunger
We must first try one of the most straightforward steps to resolve your clogged drain. First, approach the plug hole of the blocked drain. Most commonly, it will be a sink. You will use a half-cup plunger to help force the clogged drain to clear. Most simple drain blockages will be resolved after the use of a plunger. Once the drain has become unclogged, this will result in all the water clearing from the sink. We would also advise you to turn on the tap after the blockage has cleared to help wash the blockage away. If the plunger hasn’t cleared the blockage, it is time to move on to the unclogging tool of your choice.
Many unclogging tools are available for you to use, depending on where your blockage lies and what kind of problem it presents itself as having.
Use an Unclogging Tool
We advise using an unclogging tool if the plunger has not cleared the blockage. Using an unclogging tool will help clear any minor blockages within your drain. Place one end of the unclogged tool into the plug hole and feed the tool more profound into the drain. Once you find the blockage use the tool to break up the blockage and clear the drain. It is considered best practice to turn on the tap after clearing any blockages so that any remaining debris can flush away. If your chosen unclogging tool has not helped clear your drain it.
Unclogging tools are designed to break up minor blockages within your drain. Place one end of the unclogging tool into the plug hole and feed it more profoundly into the drain. Once you find the blockage use the tool to break up the blockage and clear your drain.
Try Using a Liquid Drain Cleaner
Drain cleaners are not for the faint of heart. They are dangerous chemicals that should only be used in a last-resort situation. Call a professional plumber immediately if you suspect that a drain cleaner is needed. Drain cleaners work by chemically reacting with the clog and breaking it down, but this reaction can also cause damage to your pipes and fixtures if not used properly.
Liquid drain cleaners are renowned for offering a quick solution to a clogged drain. Apply your liquid drain cleaner to the sink’s hole to help clear your blockage. The way liquid drain cleaners work is that they will cause a reaction with the blockage to help break down the blockage and help it to clear. We advise that you only use liquid drain cleaners as a last resort, as they can be very hazardous.
